Letters to Santa


It’s that time of year again, when kids can’t wait to mail their letters to Santa! To help parents out, the Cedar Springs Post has set up a special North Pole drop box. Every year dozens of kids use our special box for express delivery to the North Pole, and we make sure Santa reads each and every one! So, if you’d like to send a letter to Santa, and maybe get it printed in the newspaper, just drop off your letter in the bright red box labeled “Santa Mail” outside our office at 36 E. Maple Street, or mail your letter to: Letters to Santa, c/o the Cedar Springs Post, PO Box 370, Cedar Springs, MI 49319. 

Hurry, all letters must be in Santa’s Mail box by Monday, December 18th to reach him in time for Christmas.

Beach student a winner in work zone safety competition

Adeline Bender was one of four students selected as winners

“Avoid distractions. Somebody needs you!” Hritvi Mahajan, a third grade student at Orchard View Elementary, incorporated this powerful warning into her winning entry for the first annual Work Zone Safety Poster Contest sponsored by the Kent County Road Commission (KCRC) and the Kentwood Public Works Department.

For the contest, third grade students from throughout Kent County were invited to design caution signs promoting safe driving habits through a work zone.

“It is critical to the safety of motorists and our workers, alike, that extra caution is taken when driving through work zones. We want to instill these values early so that good habits become second nature by the time these students are ready to drive,” said Steve Warren, managing director of Kent County Road Commission.

To assist teachers, an online work zone safety resource folder was created, which included a letter to families explaining the contest, a three-minute work zone safety video, and a hand-out identifying the American Society of Safety Engineers’ safety tips for driving through a work zone.

Student submissions were judged on creativity, originality, and their ability to strongly convey a message. Out of 54 submissions received, four winning entries were selected:

• Adeline Bender, of Beach Elementary, Cedar Springs, Teacher Kim Rockwell

• Maria Huston, St. Patrick Parnell, Ada. Teacher Elizabeth D’Aurora

• Hritvi Mahajan, Orchard View Elementary, Forest Hills, Teacher Angie Wagaman

• Faith Rogers, Appleview Elementary, Sparta, Teacher Linnea Hurley

Every contestant receives a certificate of appreciation for participating in the competition and the winners receive their design replicated on a 10×10 aluminum sign, along with a KCRC sweatshirt. The four winning entries were also transferred onto 18×18 aluminum signs and will be used at local events by KCRC to promote work zone safety.

A display exhibiting all of the contest’s entries was showcased at the 2017 APWA Family Event on May 17 at the Kentwood Public Works building.

“Community support is crucial to the work that we do and to the safety of our motorists and workers. We applaud our newest ‘safety advocates’ for helping us spread the word and sharing important tips for driving through a work zone,” said Warren.
